    I have 8 EE pullets from Meyers. I just wondered if anyone had any from them that are laying and if they lay well. I have a mixed lot and would like the EE to be good layers because I have more of them than anything else.

    My answer's probably not what you're looking for... either they're really good layers or they aren't. I know a lot of people have had very good laying results with them. Hopefully you will too.

    We have lots of Ameracuanas and they are great layers, they didnt come from Meyers though.

    You mean Easter Egg chickens, right? I am a little slow on the jargon here. I had several at one point and they were splended egg layers for the first year and production fell off sharply after that.

    Quote:Yes, I have Easter Egger's. I would like some Ameraucanas. Maybe someday. I am happy right now. I hope to work my way into good layers. They are only 13 going on 14 weeks old right now. [​IMG]

    Quote:I would say that EE's lay eggs. If you want pullets that are known for being good egg layers, I think there's other breeds that lay more eggs. But EE's are really cute, enjoy them!
